• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Reamers and drill bits...

Well, don't really know where to post this :
As I'm currently ordering all the hardware neededfor the wings, I also searched for drill bits for both wood and metal, and for reamers. Initially hard to find (especially for someone far more eased with metrical system), but according to the handy ressources suggestions I had a look to woodworker.com and mscdirect.com and there I found... actually too many of them ! I can't make my mind of which type is most suitable :
I'm suppose to drill and ream : #11, 1/4" and .751/.755 : what type of reamer should suit best !?
In fact if someone is motivated enough, any info about the drill bits selection for both wood and metal would also be very welcome :)
